My radio career began at KIEE-FM in Harrisonville, Missouri which later became KCFX in Kansas City. I worked there for 4 years before landing a position at WTAD and KHQA-TV here in Quincy doing a radio show and play-by-play sports. After doing TV Sports for KHQA, I worked for both WTAD and WQCY-FM (99Q). I joined WGEM as Operations Manager and then returned to WTAD as General Manager. In 2001 I joined Y101. I have been fortunate enough to win 6 Silver Dome Awards from the Illinois Broadcasters Association, including 5 for best Play-By-Play and one for Best Radio Show Entertainer. My favorite music is the Blues. The New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs, and St. Louis Blues are my favorite teams. I played baseball for 24 years and my claim to fame is a double off of Rick Sutcliffe when we both played in Kansas City. Forty-two years later, I am still doing what I love.

Can We Quit Messing With The Clocks? The Big Dog’s Top 10 Reasons to Leave The Clocks Alone

This Sunday we messed with the clocks again as we “Sprang Forward” one hour into Standard Time. So at 2 a.m. Sunday we moved the clocks to 3 and lost an hour. Most of us were sleeping so we actually lost an hour sleep which is the hour we gained last November. It would be nice if we just left the clocks alone.  With that said, here are my top 10 reasons to leave the clocks alone.

This is How the St. Patrick’s Parade Started!

It was a morning in 1986 when I was working at 99-Q Radio with Dennis Oliver. He was just finishing up his morning show and I was beginning my mid-day stint (after working the morning show on WTAD earlier that morning). It was about a week before St. Patrick’s Day and I went up to D.O. and said we need to have a St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Quincy.

Airport Destination Codes Can Be Confusing

 

If you have ever flown you have had to ask yourself, "who came up with these airport destination code letters?" Some are obvious and others are way out there. Perhaps the guy or gal who came up with these codes had a long layover someplace and just jotted down letters to cities over a few hundred beers.
